Ike’s pledge to “bring about greater material progress and political stability in the Mid East”
Description                           Estimate: $400+          

TLS as president, one page, 6.75 x 8.75, White House letterhead, August 18, 1958. Letter to Frank Riley, in full: “I am grateful for your message regarding my recent talk before the United Nations General Assembly. I profoundly hope that the proposals I made can expeditiously be translated into projects that will bring about greater material progress and political stability in the Mid East, as well as a world atmosphere in which negotiations for a just peace can go forward, I earnestly believe that the people of the United States are eager to do everything possible to further these goals.” In very good to fine condition, with a light block of toning in the lower part of the latter. On August 15, 1958, President Eisenhower outlined a six-point plan for peace in the Middle East to a special session of the United Nations General Assembly. Among its plans, the speech expressed concerns for Lebanon and explained the use of US troops in that country—a month earlier Ike sent 15,000 Marines and soldiers to Lebanon as part of Operation Blue Bat, a non-combat mission intended to stabilize the pro-Western government and to prevent a radical revolution. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
